Today my aunt ( the last of my mother's siblings) has been discharged from hospital at long last after 8 weeks. I had a fone call from her early this evening and she is so pleased to be back in her own home in her own environment. Time will tell if all the different departments of social services are working together to make her as comfortable as possible in her last years. She is 93 and a strong and determined character, outliving all her brother's, sister's and parent's ages. When she was admitted to hospital 8 weeks ago there was very little prospect of her surviving the infection she had, a very special thank you to all the staff who looked after her during her stay in hospital.

Glad to hear she is doing better and out of the hospital.

Nice to hear the good news. But I bet you'll be busy. Sometimes they call us the sandwich generation, caring for (grand)children when needed and for remaining elderly relatives. My father is 95 and as stubborn as they come. Still living alone, doing his own thing, mostly oil painting and sketching. But he needs being looked after all the same. Flower for you.

Thank you -yes they do develop a stubborness, guess that's why get to that age! My aunt lives about 400 miles from me and I won't be involved with her care. She does have a neice who looks after her affairs and helps in the garden but she is in her 70's too! Aunty had no children of her own so she will be reliant on the comminity care. I visit her when I can.You father is doing well too and he has his interest in painting which keeps his mind active * for all Jo
